Supreme court suspends hearing of Tambuwal, Ihedioha, 4 other governors

The Supreme Court has adjourned the hearing of the appeals from the governorship elections in Bauchi, Sokoto, Kano, Plateau, Imo and Benue States to Tuesday.

The Apex court adjourned abruptly when one of the seven justices hearing the appeal in the 2019 Kano State Governorship Election suddenly fell ill while sitting.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, made the announcement after appellant counsel, Chief Gboyega Awomolo adopted his brief and urged the court to allow the appeal.

Justice Tanko Mohammad said that the court would have to abruptly rise to reconvene shortly.

After waiting for about one hour, the Registrar of the Apex court announced that proceedings would continue tomorrow.

Other governors, whose appeals were affected were Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, Emeka Ihedioha of Imo, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi, Simon Lalong of Plateau, and Samuel Ortom of Benue state.
